This poem was originally published on 10 April 2013. It appears in my debut anthology Wildflower Sea available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo Books.
The sun shone high In the corner of the sky Cut off by the window frame The meadows were green I saw stallions lean In the world of the window frame It was a starry starry night A painter's paradise The one I think Van Gogh saw It was an old window frame Not special in any way But the view it held had no flaw A frosty world lay beyond A white wonderland lay beyond I saw clockwork snowflakes fall Snowmen waved 'how do you do' Children snowballed each other through and through And grew into snow forts did walls So if you stop and think awhile You'll see there are paintings around Just look through the nearest window For beauty whispers to us without a sound
One thought on “The World in the Window”
